    Anyone have experience with shipping long distance used engines? This could be a direct replacement for my CAT

    Biggest hurdle is if the origin/shipper has the ability to package and load onto a common carrier. The rest is E-Z

    So I talked to the owner of the engine, Seems like a pretty good deal. He bought it to repower his boat but got a great deal on a cummins (which he currently has in the boat) so decided to sell this. He spray bombed it to clean it up but it has been serviced regularly and the coolers were all cleaned out. I think I am going to pursue it seeing it's exactly what came out of my JC...should be a perfect fit!!

    ...Just have to figure out shipping now

    I use uni-shippers for a lot of freight, talk to them and insure it for replacement cost. fedex and ups will kill you on freight, hope you have business address and a forklift handy it will lower your cost a lot.

    $900 from CA to CT . Rail & freight combo to commercial address with fork lift. I did not choose the method. I second U-Ship as an alternative. You might get very lucky there.

    Unishippers gave me a great quote to ship it and the seller gave me a pretty good deal on the engine so all in all I’m pretty happy and the engine should be delivered later this week!!
